Firstly I would like to say we had a great time on the cruise but now we've ticked that box would be unlikely to do this again. Perhaps we will try a shorter cruise. I am worried that this will become the new 'Bali Bogan Holiday' for ... Read more

So grateful for this amazing experience being our first ever cruise and something that we have wanted to do ever since we left Africa. It is a massive ship with plenty to do for all ages or time to just chill out and relax. The staff ... Read more

I was very reluctant to go on any cruise, but went out of family obligation. It was surprisingly good. The international crew do a magnificent job, calling you by name whenever they can. There are great shows with music and dancing and ... Read more

There was a glitz in the online system when we booked in at the port so we had to fill in the information manually. The process only took us another 10 minutes so it was not too inconvenient. The ship looks good with a few new bars and ... Read more
